Training to foster and retain talent
In the book “The Deadly Sins of Employee Retention“, authors Mark Murphy and Andrea Burgio-Murphy discuss the alarming levels of burnout, the “Great Resignation”, and the widespread phenomenon of “Quit Quitting” experienced today. This has led to over half of professionals worldwide actively seeking new job opportunities.
The authors highlight the seven “deadly sins” that often drive employees away from an organization: low pay, lack of growth and development opportunities, weak or non-existent leadership, toxic work environments, absence of meaningful work or purpose, lack of feedback or recognition, and lack of clarity or direction.
The book provides strategies and solutions to help organizations retain their most valuable employees. One of these strategies is investing in training and skill development, which not only enhances operational performance but also boosts employee satisfaction and feelings of accomplishment. As a result, employee turnover decreases, and loyalty to the organization increases.
